Cryptocurrency is a relatively new form of investment. Its concept was first introduced in 2009, and has grown ever since. To this day, there are thousands of cryptocurrencies. Just as other currencies, cryptocurrency can be related to a crime. Ever since its introduction nearly a decade ago, there have been crimes where cryptocurrency are related. According to ACIC’s crime types, cryptocurrency are related to two crime categories: cybercrime, and illicit drugs. There are also other cases where the type of crimes is not listed as a part of ACIC’s. In response to the crimes that have occurred throughout the years, several governments have moved to establish laws regarding cryptocurrency. Some governments chose to ban cryptocurrency completely, whereas others opted for regulation.
